Royce Hotel, that originated out of Melbourne's first Rolls-Royce prestige car dealership, has been listed with expectations of more than $60 million.

The 100-room Royce Hotel on St Kilda Road on the city fringe along with a four-level office building are being offered for sale by its Melbourne private owners and operators, the Bursztyn family.

The hotel’s 1920s art deco facade is a reminder of its origins as Melbourne's first Rolls-Royce prestige car dealership. 

They have been owned by the Bursztyn family since 2000. The family developed the hotel out of the old car showroom, retaining many of its heritage elements including its chandeliers, leadlight windows and ornate ceilings, according to The Australian Financial Review.

The office building includes a permit for another 67 hotel rooms.

The five-star hotel has 100 guest rooms and suites,besides the award-winning dish Restaurant, the amberoom bar, conferencing and event facilities, a gymnasium and 25 undercover car spaces.

The listing agents are Dan McVay and Sam McVay of McVay Real Estate Australia, a boutique commercial real estate agency that focuses purely on the sale of major assets. 

The hotel is being marketed via an international expressions of interest campaign.

"The Royce Hotel has been privately managed as a standalone hotel since its opening in 2000 and now provides the opportunity to introduce branded hotel management to further improve both the sales distribution networks as well as creating cost efficiencies," Dan McVay was cited as saying by the AFR.

"A number of the hotel rooms used to be car service bays.” 

He added that the potential to add another 67 rooms was an added enticement with a 100-room hotel "right on the edge" of the scale buyers sought. "Every extra room added will go straight to the bottom line," he said.

The site area is 2,164 sqm.
